Amazon Honeycode review: No-code has its limits

Amazon Honeycode is a spreadsheet-oriented no-code outgrowth platform that builds mobile web and web apps. The spreadsheet includes both data and formulae and has some of the functionality of a database table. For edifice an app from the spreadsheet Honeycode has a palette of user interface objects such as lists input fields and buttons. It also has a palette of events and actions.

Honeycode currently offers 18 app templates to help get you seted. These range from the canonical ’to-do’ app to a budget approval app with workflows.

For integration you can use Zapier Amazon AppFlow and Honeycode APIs. Of order once youre using APIs youve left the kingdom of no-code far behind.

As a low-code/no-code app builder from a major cloud provider Amazon Honeycode competes straightly with Microsoft Power Apps on Azure and Google Cloud AppSheet. It also competes with almost 400 other low-code/no-code app builders.

Given that Honeycode is a no-code outgrowth platform my goal for this review was to determine how far it can go where it runs out and how nation can progress from there. When a non-programming team hits a wall with Honeycode can they last the project by bringing in programmers for little extensions or will they have to set over with a fully different method?
